Passacaglia 1.5 inch Willyne Hammerstein
Print on fabric to sew Willyne’s rosettes for better results than with traditional Passacaglia quilt templates. Larger than the original.
Sew by hand or machine or both (hybrid) or print templates for EPP.
Passacaglia 1.5 inch is larger than the original size (1.18 inch). La Passacaglia with Mr Penrose is the exquisite quilt on the cover of Millefiori Quilts 1 by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania.
Quilters asked for the design to be made Inklingo-able, so they would have the option to sew with a running stitch instead of English Paper Piecing. Quiltmania graciously agreed. You can print on fabric instead of using acrylic templates.
This shape collection includes the shapes for Willyne Hammerstein’s Passacaglia (Millefiori Quilts 1) in a larger size.
The same shapes are available in the original size and another large size (2 inch). Inklingo shape collections for Millefiori Quilts are listed in the Index of Shapes.

When you buy this shape collection, I manually add the Hexagon Quilt Design Book (70 pages) as soon as I see your order, so you can download it too. The design book focuses on 60° hexagons but the sewing and pressing instructions also apply to these shapes.
Detailed diagrams for the rosettes and assembling the quilt top are in Willyne’s book. Passacaglia has an added layer of complexity because the rosettes interlock and overlap each other.
However, even with fussy cutting, you can get a faster finish with Inklingo than with traditional methods.
There are two great methods of fussy cutting with Inklingo. You can use traditional Swiss cheese fussy cutting with two-part freezer paper templates (printed with Inklingo). If you have the right fabric, Inklingo No Waste Fussy Cutting is a fabulous choice. Print identical sheets of fabric for No Waste Fussy Cutting, similar to Stack n Whack™.
